Do you know that you have the power to save up to three lives by donating just one pint of blood?
More than 41,000 blood donations are needed everyday in the U.S., according to the American Red Cross.
If you wish to help others, please consider becoming a volunteer blood donor. The American Red Cross is working on a number of ways to make the process easier. In fact, the organization launched a mobile Blood App that allows users to find local blood drives, receive appointment reminders and even track donations to recipients. Download and learn more about this app here.
The American Red Cross is launching an online form, called RapidPass, which allows you to start the blood donation process before your appointment. Find out how RapidPass can help make your next appointment easier and faster by clicking here.
To find a blood drive near you, please visit the American Red Cross website. I encourage you to join me in helping those in need by scheduling a blood donation appointment today.
